Wernigerode Harz Germany 19th May 2016

Wernigerode Harz Germany 19th May 2016
The 08.55 train from Wernigerode HSB to the Brocken pulled by metre gauge 2-10-2T 99 7234-0 leaves a smokescreen as it curves away from the main line and approaches Wernigerode Westerntor station off left.

The former East German Brocken listening station & towers are on the mountain summit above the train. The Brocken station is adjacent and lies at 1125m, so the train faces a climb of 890m from this point to arrive at the top at 10.36.
